Welcome to executives rooms
The moonlight path and the design of [WA]!?

The top floor of the hotel offers a natural panorama of Higashiyama, Kitayama, and Nishiyama peaks that surround the city of Kyoto. There are  private rooms for executives who sharpen their five senses and actively spend their lives. The simple black and white interior evokes the pure feeling of being in your own study.


Welcome to the capital of harmony ([WA]!?)

A large enso is hung in front of the elevator on the top floor. This work was created by Mr. Daiko Matsuyama, the deputy chief priest of Myoshinji Taizoin, one of Kyoto’s leading modern Zen monks.

The message Mr. Matsuyama put into this Enso is “PEACE IS THE BEST”
It means “harmony is respected” that  Prince Shotoku raised as a basic principle of the nation. Originally, the Zen enso symbolizes enlightenment and truth but its interpretation is left up to you.[WA]!? means both an “answer” and a “question”.

The ancient monk Kenko sees “impermanence” in the beautiful circle of the night sky in “Tsurezuregusa”, “Mochizuki’s madness…”. Everyone, please feel [WA]!?We always ask and respond to what is best for our customers. This enso is also a shape that symbolizes the spirit of hospitality at Rhino Hotel Kyoto.

Fantastic rooms wrapped by Japanese and Western art


Is your room a museum?!

An intimate private room with the works of Mr. Atsuo Sakazume, a copperplate engraving artist representing modern Japan, speak quietly. Kosei Sakazume’s manière noir (handmade black) which is described as “cutting out light and form from the darkness of velvet” emits a quiet message to the awakened modern people.


To the natural world with the theme of flowers and birds
Light up your room

Washi is indispensable in traditional Japanese culture. A single piece of Japanese paper embodies the Japanese climate and the sensibility of the craftsmen.
The Japanese paper is moist and breathable like human skin and when light is allowed to pass through it, its presence becomes even richer and softer, creating a moment of tranquility in a space of hospitality.

SHARP humidifying air purifier

<Plasma Cluster NEXT. This is the sharp air purifying power>

Plasmacluster NEXT fights against air risks with a high concentration of 50,000 or more ions per cm3, far exceeding that found in nature. Plasmacluster, which improves people’s lives, has demonstrated new effects in addition to improving air purification power by increasing ion concentration. It seems that the ion concentration is high, and the effect is also increasing.

SHARP humidifying air purifier

<Two-layered humidifying filter provides plenty of humidification and low noise>

By passing the wind twice, more water is vaporized and released. The amount of humidification has increased by approximately 9% compared to conventional models. In addition, by installing a two-layer humidifying filter, the operating noise is reduced even when humidifying on “strong” mode. We have achieved a noise level of 43dB, which is 9dB lower than before, which can be called low noise. We focus on practical usability and aim to create a more comfortable and moisturized space than ever before.
